Nirvana
Sliver: The Best of the Box
Geffen

"It's unnerving that well-intentioned fans will stand by attentively and buy every Nirvana release, while the label Tupacs the shit out of Cobain's catalog flotsam. Were he alive, would he want these songs up for mass consumption?" (Metro Times)

"It's difficult to see Sliver as anything more than a sneaky swindle designed to aggravate Nirvana completists who already own the box set and don't otherwise require another non-self-compiled best-of." (Pitchfork)

"A record that does nothing but sully the Seattle band's trailblazing legacy. Fans will buy it for the sleeve's proclamation of 'three unreleased songs,' but the sketchy, hissy, uninspiring skeletons of tunes Kurt didn't want to release in his lifetime are scant reward for your buck." (NME)

"There are six great Nirvana records. This is not the seventh." (Blender)
